    I originally had ignored Gloom, but after a talk with one of the clan's new members I discovered that Gloom indeed has potential and gained some buffs this generation. Notably the buff to Poison type and the gained resistances to Fairies. Along with this Gloom has an adequate enough movepool, a low enough speed and decent enough defenses thanks to Eviolite to run a Trick Room set. Not all is good for our flowery friends, unfortunately, it has two common weaknesses in Fire and Ice type. However its resistances and other key features are more than enough to offset Gloom's setbacks.

    Set #1: Trick Room

    Gloom @ Eviolite
    Ability: Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpA or SpD (Dependent on last moveslot)
    IVs: 0 Spe
    Brave Nature
    - Swords Dance
    - Petal Blizzard
    - Drain Punch
    - Sludge Bomb / Moonlight / Giga Drain

    Set Description:

    Gloom can utilize this set rather well, but unfortunately has to rely on its Special side (which luckily is naturally higher) for coverage since it doesn't get any physical poison moves. Petal Blizzard is your STAB of choice, maiming whatever doesn't resist it after a Swords Dance. Drain Punch allows you to nail Darks and Steels that would try to get in your way. The last slot depends on what you would want to do, if you want Poison STAB coverage, run Sludge Bomb for a chance to poison as well. Moonlight is an alternative option for recovery, or you could run another Grass STAB in Giga Drain.

    Other Options:

    Gloom has a couple niche support options, such as Leech Seed. However other Pokemon are generally more adapted to being able to take out Gloom. Grassy Terrain is an interesting option for supporting a Grass team.
